Wingers that don't go below the hashmarks are what I typically label defensive zone floaters. How often do you see Perron "covering" the point man? Plenty, because all he's looking to do is have his teammates do the work and he can stand there and wait for the transition to begin. Oshie on the other hand, is much quicker to put pressure on the puck carrier, but what separates the two is Oshie's willingness to cover the middle of the ice. I don't want to hear that crap about covering the point men. You cover them by pressuring the real threat, the forwards, while putting yourself in position to stop the pass to the point.
